Category:Scenes using X transformation

It springs to mind that there's no simple way to find pages related to specific transforms, for example parasitized body parts or peculiar lower bodies. Rather than doing any complicated trickery, it seems like a set of categories could do the trick? Just a thought. --Beladonna (talk) 08:31, 29 December 2016 (UTC)

Version Stamps

Would it be possible to have new content added with a debut version stamp somewhere on the page? This assumes that most of the new content added to the wiki is being added roughly concurrently to the actual game updates. If that ends up being too much hassle, I can see how that might happen.

There's probably something that could be done with DPL generation to automate the display end. It would need some thinking as to how best to pull it all together though; I'd need to do some research but I vaguely remember there is some kind of data-organisation thing in MediaWiki such that you can query things from other pages. Adding "new content" to an existing page using that, and then having DPL to figure out what the most recent set of changes are might work. --Gedan (talk) 08:24, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
[1] This might be able to do it. When I get some free time I'll have a try and see how it works out. This may also offer some other advantages too though; convert things like game items into cargo data, and then use that data both on the items own page but also in various indexes to allow for automatically updated values etc. ("List of armor" > "Sort by defense" type things") --Gedan (talk) 08:49, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
Just to be clear we are both on the same subject, I'm referring to the version of the game that a feature or item was first added (in a working capacity) Though I admit that is an interesting extension concept. Being able to consolidate all the item data in one place and have other pages pull from there seems like it would save a lot of formatting work. Beladonna (talk) 09:41, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
Yes, I think so. I think the easiest way to manage the root capability (that is, showing some 'latest changes' list on the Main Page that aligns with game patches, as opposed to 'last updated pages on the Wiki') will be to have some extra data around that can be queried and displayed in different ways. Say a new scene is added to an NPC, the most logical thing to do would be to have an "Updates" subsection on each NPC page, that declares update information (say, the game version number the change was made, the type of change and a note about what the change entailed specifically). If that information can then be queried by other pages, then automated lists can be built that won't require maintainence past making sure the source data is available. Being able to do more things with it (like also formatting item information in a similar manner) and build yet more automatically updated summary systems serves to increase the value and usability of the wiki and the information it contains. --Gedan (talk) 01:39, 8 December 2016 (UTC)

Removing (TiTS) from Categories

Would it be possible to run a bot through the wiki and remove all the "_(TiTS)" from categories? Thanks!--Lashcharge (talk) 23:10, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

I'll look at it probably later tonight. I think I'll have to clear some pages out first, all of the old CoC and FoE pages will still be in this DB import iirc. --Gedan (talk) 01:39, 8 December 2016 (UTC)
I did some mass replace action. I think I got all of the instances of (TiTS) moved over to versions of pages that no longer include it, but there might be a few still kicking around in places. Or pages that didn't properly end up with a REDIRECT created for whatever reason. --Gedan (talk) 02:33, 8 December 2016 (UTC)
I checked the categories section and there were still lots, but I fixed most of them. I also found a lot of categories with CoC Files, so I marked most of them with the {{delete}}, which is what other wikis normally do when they mark files for deletion. You can find a list of pages I marked for deletion here. Some pages I didn't mark for deletion, because there were too many.
Either way thanks for all the work. :P--Lashcharge (talk) 16:08, 8 December 2016 (UTC)
I nuked an absolute shitload of CoC pages; I think I've probably got like 95% of them now. --Gedan (talk) 20:47, 8 December 2016 (UTC)
Well the search menu doesn't find anything else when searching CoC, so I think you just got all of them. I also added categories to every category so it should be possible to access all categories. As I was writing this I realized images don't have categories, so I went file list and found a lot of images from CoC and FoE. I don't have time now to individually classify them as to be deleted or not, but I'll do it tomorrow or afterwards.--Lashcharge (talk) 22:54, 8 December 2016 (UTC)
I also did a small change to the delete template so it adds a Category:Candidates for deletion so it's easier to see what should be deleted. I took this from the wowpedia delete template.--Lashcharge (talk) 23:04, 8 December 2016 (UTC)
